Expert Will Writing Solicitors And Legal Advice
Although drawing up a Will can be a difficult issue to confront, it is vital to ensure that all you have worked hard for is left to those you hold so dear. By allowing our team of expert Will writers to help prepare or amend your Will, you can avoid a lot of future stress for your loved ones.
We have a specialist consultant, Lynn Wheeldon, who will be happy to assist you in the drawing up of a Will or any probate or Trust matter.
Getting Your Affairs In Order
Writing a Will is extremely important and really shouldn’t be put off. Dying without a Will in the UK means your estate is subject to the rules of intestacy. Under the rules of intestacy, a spouse or civil partner may not inherit your entire estate, but may have to share it with children, parents or siblings. Cohabitants and step-children may well not benefit at all from an intestate estate.
A professionally written Will ensures none of the above happens. Our specialist Will writers will talk you through your entire estate, leaving nothing to chance. Your chosen beneficiaries will inherit your estate with the minimum of fuss or distress at an already traumatic time. Issues such as guardianship and the appointment of appropriate executors will also be addressed.
Peace Of Mind
Professional Will writing solicitors guarantee peace of mind
There are many essential reasons why you should make a Will:
- Unmarried partners cannot inherit from each other unless there is a Will.
- If you have children under the age of 18 you need to make arrangements for guardianship in the event one or both parents die.
- You may be able to reduce the amount of tax payable on the inheritance for your loved ones.
- If you die without making a valid Will, then the Law decides on the allocation of your assets; it may all be left to the Crown!
In recent times there has been a growing tendency towards ‘do it yourself’ Wills, using Internet guides and templates found in book shops. Sadly, Wills are complicated legal documents with specific knowledge required to avoid misinterpretation. If this occurs the inheritance process can become very complicated, often involving Courts and solicitors. This of course results in ever increasing costs which are deducted from the deceased’s estate. Any Will not absolutely clear in the eyes of the Law is open to challenge, meaning your final wishes could be overruled, or your Will declared invalid.
